House set to vote for more regulations on Uber and Lyft | WTNH

The bill would require Transportation Network Companies such as Uber and Lyft to register annually with the Department of Transportation; and have drivers submit to background checks, according to Connecticut’s Office of Legislative Research. In addition, it establishes insurance, operational, non-discrimination, accessibility, and alcohol and drug test policy requirements for TNCs.

It also restricts the TNCs from increasing the price of a ride by more than 2.5 times the usual price during any Governor or U.S. President declared emergency.
